Galilee is a region with dramatic scenery and momentous history. It is a land of forested mountains and lush valleys, settled by the earliest of humans. The olive was first cultivated here, as was the original wild emmer wheat, the forerunner of our domesticated variety. Galilee was always a land of farmers, people connected to the earth and its abundance. Many of the earliest gods are Galilean, Pan for example – the god of shepherds. The hardiest warriors came from Galilee – such as the Jewish fighters against the Romans in the Great Rebellion. Many of the Talmudic sages were Galileans, including renowned healers and rabbis.

The issue includes a separate guide to Galilee and a map.
